Near two hours to lose 6-7(2)/2-6
I only followed the first set which lasted 1h05. Arnaud was in trouble in his two first service game saving 5 BP
and even if he went sometimes until the ad on Davydenko's serve he didnt't have BP in that set. He fell down in the tie-break with of course his traditionnal DF
. According the stats of second set he missed 2 BP and was broken two times. He had tried but Davydenko is just better indeed. Not enough first serve today but it wouldn' have changed the match since he won 55% on first serve against 59% on second serve
A new defeat against a guy with a really better ranking than him. He's not ridiculous & fights well but against that guys he can't win
. The field of Rome qualies is really impressive even win one match will be a big challenge for little Arno. It confirms that he entered Bordeaux but there the field is also very good better than last year. I only hope that this win and his good fight today will help him and boost him. It was his first win on clay in atp tournament no challenger i mean since 2007
